K&L Notes

A four star vintage according to Michael Broadbent, who wrote in 'Vintage Wine': "1966: One of my favorite vintages, which I have always described as a 'lean, long distance runner'...[Chateau Margaux] noted as elegant, fruity, slim yet with (firm) core in the mid 1970s. A decade later displaying its inimitable fragrance, beautiful elliptical shape, flesh, and length...It was also showing well at the 1966 Wine Experience gala dinner in New York, a bit restrained on the nose until it decided to relax and open up. Still tannic. The most instructive events were Manfred Wagners two Margaux vertical tastings in Zurich, my notes and ratings not dissimilar, in both instances (1997 and 2000) it was interesting to see how well the bouquet developed - about 45 minutes to reach perfection. Both were in good condition, with fine flavor, texture, and length. Last tasted Nov 2000." (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 11/02)
